From Pekka Gronow: "...the Commission feels that orphan music is not a
problem, because UK copyright organisations have told them so."
My understanding is that in the UK, unlike in the United States, a single
entity collects and pays all of the music related royalties so there is no
need to contact a copyright owner in order to obtain a license. If that's
true, obviously there is no such thing as orphan music in the UK.
